Kalen­jin com­mu­nity ig­nores Mu­tutho’s call for fe­male run­ning mate in 2017

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Mem­bers of the Kalen­jin com­mu­nity are yet to of­fer a fe­male run­ning mate to Nakuru gov­er­nor aspi­rant John Mu­tutho. The for­mer Naivasha MP had asked the com­mu­nity early this year to field 12 fe­male can­di­dates for vet­ting, say­ing the best would be picked as his run­ning mate while the other top five will get ex­ec­u­tive jobs in his gov­ern­ment.

“I want a grad­u­ate run­ning mate aged be­tween 21-35 years, from the Kalen­jin com­mu­nity. The elders should select the 12,” he told the Star ear­lier this month.

Both elders and youths termed the call as un­nec­es­sary ask­ing him to pick a run­ning mate of his choice. Nakuru Gover­nor­ship as­pi­rants who have not yet picked run­ning mates in­clude Lee Kinyan­jui and Se­na­tor James Mun­gai.
